To celebrate Potato Week here at Food52, we’ve partnered with Potatoes USA to share ways we love to use the staple ingredient in meals that bring people together. Inspired takes on these classic recipes showcase the best of what this versatile and nutrition-packed kitchen player has to offer.
Predictability can be a good thing in the kitchen (especially when baking!), but great cooking often comes from shaking things up. Experimenting with new ingredients or different seasonings can bring a whole new dimension to a classic meal, adding an inventive edge to comforting nostalgia. Here, we’ve gathered four familiar potato dishes, each with a unique twist. Who knows? Maybe they’ll become your family’s new classics.
